Burrough Court has a wealth of history and unique charm, giving every visitor the chance to enjoy its remarkable setting and beautiful surroundings. Built in 1906 to the arts and crafts style, Burrough Court was the site of a grand country house used as a popular hunting lodge for the gentry and royal family.

During the 1930’s the Prince of Wales regularly visited his good friends, Lord and Lady Furness at Burrough Court their country retreat. It was whilst enjoying an evening reception that the Prince met his future wife, Wallis Simpson who had a close relationship with Lady Furness.

Sadly, at the end of World War II in the 1940s the house was destroyed in a fire, allegedly due to the 10th Battalion, Parachute Regiment using explosives to get to a sealed wine cellar. The courtyard and grooms’ quarters survived and were restored in 2001 into offices and meeting rooms.

The commemorative sculpture to the Tenth Battalion The Parachute Regiment, is situated on the Twyford Road and opposite Burrough Court. It is almost central to all the locations where the Battalion was billeted in 1944 prior to its departure for Arnhem. Of the 582 men that deployed only 36 returned two weeks later.

Aside from commercial space the farm produces cereals, oil seed rape and is part of an agri-environmental scheme, ensuring every effort is made to look after the surrounding countryside, whilst enhancing the outstanding natural wildlife habitat.

In the rear garden you will find the `Giraffe House’, a stylish contemporary office that is aptly named, since in the 1920’s, Lord Furness having developed a deep love for Africa, would visit the country and return home with various animals which included a zebra and giraffe, being where todays logo originates from.

Opposite the entrance you will see the Get Busy Living Centre, a centre for people who have suffered catastrophic injury through sport, founded by Matt Hampson who sadly broke his neck playing for England rugby under 20s. In its previous life this was an aircraft hangar where Lord Furness housed his private aeroplane. This aeroplane was used to fly the family abroad.
